Title:Parties to the commission of a crime and the doctrine of common purpose in Zambia: an examination of sections 21 and 22 of the Penal Code
Author:Ndulo, MunaISNI
Periodical:Zambia Law Journal
Geographic term:Zambia
Abstract:This article is intended to briefly examine a) the various roles played by participants in a crime and b) the question of the doctrine of common purpose, a concept developed in law, to predicate liability on others other than the actual perpetrator of the crime. The intention is to clarify the law on this matter and thereby promote a better understanding of this area of the law. The article deals with the subject at hand by first considering section 21 of the Penal Code which is the section which deals with the question of parties to a crime and other related matters and then considers the doctrine of common purpose which is covered by section 22 in the Penal Code. Notes.
